Dragonfly on thistle seed head
A thistle doesn't look like the most comfortable spot to wait for prey to pass by...but I'm not a dragonfly so what do I know?
Reds and oranges ALREADY
Every August I'm surprised to see a few leaves changing colours. Why am I surprised when it happens every year?
Please visit Michelle at Rambling Woods for more NATURE NOTES.
It seems summer has finally got going and now it will be Autumn just around the corner. In a months time. Nice shot!
Oh, what exquisite captures -- as always!! And, as always, they do take my breath away!! I haven't seen any leaves turning yet, but we seldom see that change before late September and it is colorful here then!! I usually am not ready for Fall, but this year I AM!! Hope you have a beautiful new week!!
Love to see the Dragonfly. My grandmother always called them, "Snake Doctors".
Very special nature photos. Love the red dragonfly as I don't get to see too many of those unless I am traveling.
It is beginning to look more like fall.
Love that first photo!
Amazing focus on that thistle!
Nice photos of the Thistle and the lovely dragonfly, Tina!
Is it near Fall already? :)
Have a Wonderful Week!
These are beautiful; I especially love the dragonfly - of course!
These are beautiful!
Whoa! The first capture is stunning!
I was surprised this weekend to see leaves starting to change colour too! That dragonfly photo is amazing!! xx
We've got abundant thistles right now but I can't say I've seen anything close to your beautiful red dragonfly. It's wonderful.
I'm also starting to see the beginnings of autumn leaves (sigh)...and thistle fluff is everywhere.
Great shots, but the first one does indeed look a little painful!
Gorgeous captures! I love the dragonfly and the thistle fluff.
Wonderful photos! Love the dragonfly!
Gorgeous series of macros EG, the dragon fly on thistle gorgeous but my fav is the third, almost abstract shot, fabulous!
I really love that wispy thistle at the end. gorgeous. and so is that red dragonfly. OUCH on sitting on the thistle. we saw the biggest dragonfly we have ever seen, almost as big as a humming bird and brilliant gold
Have a nice week.
The dragonfly might think it's the ideal perch.
A change is always welcomed and makes look forward too... so there’s no surprise to feel same for the change in color! Beautiful shots
You always capture such great macros. :)
Excellent, as always!
Every time I see a dragonfly I think of you and how you seem to be able to get great pics of them all the time! I never see them sit still! It sure feels like summer today, EG!
Love these, EG! As to being surprise, I am the same way. I have not looked in a few days, but last week, I noticed a bright red leave on a tree across the street. It was totally green otherwise...the leave was too high for me to photograph. and I have been watching the yellows develop on the cottonwoods south of us...our favorite time is approaching. We need to eat our wheaties and stay healthy till we can get out and enjoy it!
Beautiful and special nature photos!
what a cool idea! are the flowers marigolds?
Fall is knocking at the door! :) Great photos!
Lovely series of images! The dragonfly and thistle fluff are beauties! I have been seeing some fall colors here too.
I hear the baby american goldfinch begging and that is my end of summer cue.. Lovely dragonfly and thistle photo Tina... Michelle
You are so good with macro shots.
